Fountain of Life Christian School
We believe that when they are schooled, children will view life in a more positive way. They may even be able to get a job or create one! This will improve the social economic status of the community.
We dedicate our time to providing school supplies and tuition for children in the community. One year ago we had five kids in our education program. Currently, the Lord has provided for 70 children to receive our help. There are many kids in the community that can’t afford to be in school. As we still wait on God to provide resources for building our own school that will also act as an evangelism and discipleship center both for the kids and parents/guardians, we will continue to send kids to schools in the neighboring communities.
School is Open!
What a mighty God we serve! I know there are many of you who have been a part of this work God has done and still doing in our community. Only God knew this would come to fruition! On February 4th, 2019 we opened our school #fountainoflifechristianschool with 52 learners. It was a wonderful day! Many things still needed but today we choose to give thanks to everyone God has influenced and used to bring this wonderful work to the place it is today. Great things are yet to come. We still have a lot of unsponsored kids, but we know God will being this to pass as well! The Fountain of Life Christian School is still in need of tables, chairs, seats, and books, but these will be added over time God willing.
Our Dream to Start a School
This started in 2017 when we first came here. We realized a very high rate of early school drop out and early pregnancy. This also made many young ladies to become susceptible to acquiring HIV. We thought that starting a Christian based school was partly the solution as young people would get the opportunity to have an education, but also an opportunity to hear the word of God and if they come to the faith be discipled. We then started by using some of the money we had saved up and started building with so little funds while trusting the Lord to provide more funds to finish the school.
We also started going to schools in the next communities to bring about HIV awareness to the young people. We not only teach about HIV prevention measures but we use the opportunity to share the gospel with the young people. We believe it’s easier for a young person to remain sexually pure until marriage if they come to the Lord and the Spirit of the Lord is working in them to produce a fruit of obedience to God’s word. Just this past year 100+ young people came to the faith through HIV awareness program.
In most of the schools where we do HIV awareness, its impossible for us to share the gospel since they are Roman Catholic based schools.
What we do, we invite kids at our camp site and play games, eat food and share the gospel with them. There are many young people that have heard the gospel through our camping ministry and they are growing through the Bible studies we do with them at our house.
God is doing amazing work in some of these young people’s lives.

The kids that come to the faith and some of those
who haven’t come to the faith yet, come to our home for weekend Bible studies to continue growing in God’s word.
God is really an amazing work in some of those Kids’ lives.
The challenge is that some parents now refuse their kids from coming to our Bible studies and camps since they’re afraid that their kids will convert to Christianity.
Giving Away School Supplies and Paying for School
Since we learned that many kids are unable to even have basic school supplies. We started giving out basic school supplies to the kids, and this was yet another opportunity to have them come and hear the gospel being preached. We have been doing this since April 2017.
We also started paying tuition for some of the kids that could not stay in school because of a lack of tuition. We have been taking care of about 70 young people.
Low Quality Education and Long Distances
As we continued paying tuition for the kids, we realized that they were not learning much from school as the standard of education here in the countryside is wanting.
When we realized that we thought it was time to start our own school where we would provide quality education to the kids. But also use this as an opportunity to plant teach young people God’s word regularly without restraints.
Also the distance young people have been walking the bushy paths to go study is very long and risky, young people have been walking 6Km to and from school everyday. And most times without a meal in-between.
We Started Teaching Them
Since kids were not learning well from school. We started helping some of them in improving in mathematics, science and English at our house.
This has been very helpful until now that our school is done and ready to start running.
Building the School
By God’s grace our school is close to being accomplished. We are now trusting God for 150 seats [$1500] for the seats and library [$500] for the school.
Raising Funds for Tuition
Now that the school is getting done and kids are starting to study on 4th of February. We need raise tuition fee and school supplies for 100 kids.
Each kid pays $35 for tuition, and $6 dollars for lunch. The $6 help kid to have lunch for a month and a school term has three months- meaning meals cost $18 per term. Making it $53 a term per kid.
We are unable to raise these funds on our own. Therefore we are trusting God for His provision through His people.
Our Humble Plea
In the ideal world, all kids should have been taken care of their parents, at least that’s the Biblical mandate. Unfortunately for most of these kids parental love, care and protection remains a dream far beyond their reach.
But God being so gracious, He has saved some of us and He is transforming us from living for self to living for Him and therefore becoming His Hands and Feet to reach far in touching lives like those in our community. We love because He loved us first, we care because He cares far much than we deserve, we give some because He gave everything to us and for us.
Therefore, for that reason we honor you by asking you to partner with us in bringing both now and eternal change in the lives of these youngsters.
